A. MEMBERSHIP COMMITMENT
We don't have a fixed amount for dues, and instead ask members to pledge their fair share, based on income.
Your financial commitment pays for necessary operating expenses, staff and clergy salaries, as well as subsidizing more than 50% of our Religious/Hebrew Schools. In addition, TBE pays to the Union of Reform Judaism dues of approximately $90 per member family. We have provided a chart to help determine your contribution. (See the link below.)
Your membership commitment is determined by your total income from the “Adjusted Gross Income” line on your most recent federal income tax return and any income from other sources.
